The Final Frontier, New Zealand 2019/2020
Written by Jos   

Starting this week, a four-week trip to one of the last great corners of the world that I have yet to visit! A brief stop in Hong Kong, then the delights of New Zealand, covering North Island, South Island, Steward Island and a couple of the smaller associated islands.

Island Endemics, Sardinia & Corsica

Nettle-tree Butterfly

 

 

Travelling from 4-17 July 2019, this two-week trip focussed on the butterflies of Sardinia and Corsica, including species such as Nettle-tree Butterfly and, even more so, the dozen or so endemic species, top of the list the dramatic Corsican Swallowtail. Effort was also made to see the more notable birds of the two islands, including Eleonora's Falcon, Marmora's Warbler and the two endemics, Corsican Nuthatch and Corsican Finch.

Part Two. Return to the Golan Heights.
Written by Jos   

Eastern Brown Argus

 

Following my earlier trip for Lebanese Festoons and other early season species in April, this short visit from 8-10 June was very much a follow-up, concentrating only on the uplands of the Golan Heights and Mount Meron areas and targeting the many mid-summer species that inhabit these highland regions. Abundant butterflies, including Ascentria's Fritillary, Little Tiger Blue and both Tawny and Lebanese Silverline.
